Any rumors about the status of Thanksgiving and how black Friday will be handled?
Topics regarding layoffs at Bass Pro Shops
Seen customers with the F word on their shirts few times in my store. Store probably afraid of getting no support from corporate in terms of telling a customer they can not wear the shirt. Corporate is useless.
How in the heck is the company telling multi year full time outfitters/managers they can’t get bonuses/review pay increases for the entire year because of Covid, but turn around and hand out $1000 retention bonuses to new employees day 1. I’m in the... — read more
Started working for Basspro 3 weeks ago and I think I’ve made a huge mistake. What is going on with this company? Everything seems outdated and run as cheaply as possible. Most of the employees who aren’t full time are worthless. We are missing so... — read more
Word is CLUB is going to be restructured for the holiday. Company is going to be keeping a more aggressive eye on employees who struggle with it. Management might have to discipline at the same level as a no call/insubordination which include write... — read more
Any stores with employees testing positive? If so, any protocol being followed?
Former GSM here. I left several months ago and now work for a grocery store. One of the best moves I have ever made. For myself not feeling safe was the last straw but the past year contributed as well. Essentially I managed softlines and my team was... — read more
Does basspro/cabelas plan on being competitive at all when it comes to employee benefits? I know we just received a 1 time bonus but we lost another manager to Lowe’s (who has been giving a bonus every month, plus hazard pay). Walmart, Sams, Costco... — read more
I’m the only full time/lead associate in our camping department. Just had a meeting with what’s left of our managers. Our new store manager just went over how we will be having to take over new responsibilities because the company is slowing down... — read more
Glad to see this happening and tip of the cap for all who are on the front, middle, back, top and bottom of the line supporting the customers.
Hopefully this will boost store traffic and sales of Tracker Boats
How many stores lost their GM or Asst GM?
Any update on layoffs that where going to happen around this time? I would figure if something where to happen, it would be after the holiday. Hearing managers talk about corporate HR visiting stores in my district this month. I’m on edge and... — read more
Good club card day=smiles and jokes Bad club card day=yelling, stomping and rearranging displays for no reason This cannot continue.
I work the register and have to deal with the people that don’t want to wear masks. When I ask them to put one on because it’s required in our state they cuss me out and call me all different types of names. They sometimes call either the GM, the... — read more
i worked for a mass retailer before joining bass pro. I don't see how they stayed in business so long with the old systems, poor replenishment process. Process other companies was using ten years ago haven't even came to Bass Pro. Every year the... — read more
Just learned that one guy is store manager in three stores. Gainesville Fl, Macon Ga and Savannah Ga. The stores are all at least 3 to 4 hours apart. How will this work out?
Sadly this company has gone into the toilet when it used to be the best place to work in retail. My store is now a joke and everyone hates it there now. They lecture about club constantly and they lecture about stocking and all they care about is... — read more
Just heard from a few managers that was fired today. Company is going down. Who will be left to run stores.
I don’t know if this is just my district or if this is company wide. Some older leads have been let go of have been offered demotions with a pay cut. Younger part time (probably min wage) are then being hired to fill in positions. The leads that are... — read more
I'm telling you, we'd go better if they all quit and no replacements were put in place! That's how much they contribute to the proper functioning of this company!
Our store hasn’t fed the fish in almost two weeks and they are starting to die. Idk if this is a company thing or our store manager is a lunatic and is cheap as hell right now.
Cut payroll, fire people who know anything about hinting, fishing, or camping. Get a bunch of cheap managers who are obedient. Pay minimum wage to the low ranks and who cares if they can help customers or not. Fire them and hire new mo–ns. Stock... — read more
This chain cares more about the sale of a gun than the well being of its employees. Period. The employees who did not get furloughed DID NOT receive 2 weeks pay or a temporary pay raise. NOTHING. Disgraceful. Shame on you Bass Pro. To tout that... — read more
Any actual evidence for layoffs next month? I’m a lead for one of the southern stores and things have been a sh– show. Our store started to do call backs this weekend after running on a skeleton crew the past month. Is there a real timetable for any... — read more
I've read people say that they've been threatened with retribution if they decide to stay home even if it was said we are allowed to. Is this true?
They are laying off all leads and assist Myers and full timers!! We just got word from HO and they can’t pay insurance. They are getting rid of excessive HR personnel, inventory shipment members and office workers. It does seem fair as we have seen... — read more
When is the layoff of FT employees to be announced? I'd like to know the same thing. Any info would be appreciated.
Hi folks! Any of you in Tracker trying to crank out record sales and not enough help? The stress is overwhelming.
Word is the deli is closing. For good. Good good. What have you heard
We are one of the stores who has a GM covering three stores. Although I haven’t heard any rumors about additional cuts it wouldn’t surprise me. Things have been strange for awhile now. Nothing would surprise me at this point. Hope for the best !
I have hears some rumors of additional reductions coming up in the next couple of weeks. Potentially more management, admin and HR. Anyone hearing anything about this or is it purely rumor?
Just curious out there, has anyone been called back? A gal I know has, and shes a part timer in soft lines. But as far as her and I know, shes the only one so far to be called back. Bout time for me to begin looking for a new job. I enjoyed some... — read more
but it looks like I am being called back now. Has anyone else been called back sooner than expected?
Hey guys I’m wondering if anyone knows about the corporate emails being sent to upper management about sending soft lines home because of poor sales? I’ve been furloughed twice now from this company and I was just brought back for a 28 hour work... — read more
Then just quit. If you’re really scared you are going to die just quit. Anyone thinking Johnny Morris owes them anything is being naive. Everybody complaining on here can make the decision for themselves not to work for someone they clearly blame for... — read more
Log onto Workday. There's a letter from Mr Johnny.
Go back and look at what we borrowed to purchase Cabelas. According to news stories we borrowed 2.4 Billion from Goldman Sachs and a private equity firm to buy them. Those bills have to be paid, no matter how bad sales get. So i think we will cut... — read more
